This is the story of my life. Me knowing something is wrong, don’t know what it is, but I know it’s something. And Doctor after Doctor after Doctor saying it was nothing, that I was too young, or that it was all in my head. In my head?
Doctors infuriate me…

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
